So it looks like I’m in danger of turning the site into a Watchmen fanzine – but I don’t care! EW.com have published an “exclusive first look” at the movie that includes interviews with Zack Snyder and others and covers the problems of bringing it to the big screen and it’s well worth a look, if only to check out the six brand new images they are proudly showing off as well! Two of which might well give little shivers to people familiar with the comic – and if you’re wondering I’m on about the Comedian ones (one of which you can see below).
Still not convinced to give it a look? Well, check out this little snippet from early on in the article and see if it gets your attention:
”In my movie, Superman doesn’t care about humanity, Batman can’t get it up, and the bad guy wants world peace,” Snyder says with a smirk. ”Will Watchmen be the end of superhero movies? Probably not. But it sure will kick them in the gut.”
Now that sounds like what I’m hoping to see on the cinema next year!
And something else I learned from this article – Zack Snyder is not only a fan of the original comic book but he was also of the school of thought that it shouldn’t, or couldn’t, be transferred to film. Interesting. Let’s just hope he pulls it off.
And if you head on over to the official movie website they have updated it with new images, desktop wallpapers and synopsis’ etc.
